7 Benefits of Suspension System Maintenance
Have you noticed a little extra 'bounce' in your ride lately? If you have, it might be time to have your suspension system serviced. Other signs to watch out for include a 'crooked' or stiff steering wheel that makes turning difficult or uneven tire wear. If you just ignore these warning signs, you could be calling a tow truck sooner, rather than later!
The Importance of Maintaining Your Suspension System
Your car's suspension does more than just ensure a smooth ride. It's also a critical safety component of any vehicle. The suspension system is what keeps your car connected to the road. If you have to brake or swerve suddenly, it's the suspension system that keeps your vehicle on the road and under control. Unfortunately, potholes, gravel roads, and other rough rides can all take a toll on your car's springs, shocks, struts, tires, and other suspension system components. So, too, can running over curbs! That's why you'll want to have the suspension checked if it takes a hard bump or at least every 30,000 miles (15,000 if you drive a lot on rough roads).
Benefits of Maintaining Your Suspension System
In order to keep your vehicle in good condition, routine suspension system maintenance is essential. Regular maintenance of your suspension system will also provide you with the following benefits:
- Your rides will be smoother and more comfortable.
- You'll notice more consistent and reliable handling and braking, along with better stability.
- Your tires will maintain improved contact with the road.
- Your tires and brakes will wear evenly.
- Those expensive tires will last longer.
- You'll achieve improved gas mileage.
- Wear on other vehicle systems will reduce.
